It’s Time for a Brain Workout

brain workout 2I love it when people start exercising either by going to a fitness center or by hitting the road. I know exactly what I’m going to hear the next day. “Man, I thought working out would make me feel energized; but I ache in places I never knew existed before!” They’re feeling the affects of making their muscles get out of and go way beyond their comfort zone.
Walking with Jesus is an exercise of the willing. If we want to follow Jesus we have to get out of our comfort zones and exercise some faith. We have to believe the truths Jesus tells us. Yet, how is it that it is far easier to listen to the negative voice in our head than to the voice of Jesus? We all know it’s true.
So it’s time for a little brain workout. Let’s practice listening to the only voice that can lead us to victory over our drugs of choice – Jesus. Start exercising the next time a negative thought pops up in your head. Grab it. Exchange it with the truth. (If you haven’t put  that truth in your head yet, now’s the time!) Then act upon that truth. The more you exercise your faith in Jesus’ voice the more you’ll experience great tasting freedom.
Remember, you will act consistently with the way you think. It’s time for a brain workout.

One thought on “It’s Time for a Brain Workout

  1. We touched a little upon this in our Men’s Group reading and as soon as I read your post it took me right back to this scripture from our reading.

    Have nothing to do with irreverent, silly myths. Rather train yourself for godliness; for while bodily training is of some value, godliness is of value in every way, as it holds promise for the present life and also for the life to come. (1 Timothy 4:7, 8 ESV)
